    fusion71au got a reaction from crazybirdy in Catalina MBR HFS Firmware Check Patch   
    I can confirm @crazybirdy's method works perfectly to clean install Catalina DP2 into either an HFS+ or apfs target partition, and avoids creating a separate apfs--Data volume. 
     
    Pictures below are from my tests in a VMware virtual machine...
     
     
    Great work @crazybirdy

    Yes, it is the Catalina Recovery HD, created after clean install into newly formatted HFS+ target partition with @crazybirdy's EasyMBR-Installer1015 .

    However, it's ok to install to HFS+, but some apps seems only work with APFS like as icloud drive, and some apps can't install to HFS+ as someone's feedback.
     
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    List of known issues:
    1. iCloud Drive need APFS to work.
    2. Some app-pkg-installers can't install to HFS+, but install to APFS fine.

    I can confirm that the ALPM patch for AppleAHCIPort by @vit9696 still works in Mojave (DB2) and High Sierra 10.13.6beta3.
     
    Note Sunki's original patch works in HS but not in Mojave on my 5 series GA-P55AUD3 system (No2 in my signature).

    @Matgen84,
     
    According to @vit9696's post#14243 at Applelife.ru, it seems like his patch will fix all the problems introduced with AppleAHCIPort.kext v329, running on old SATA controllers/hard disks.  The fundamental problem is that Aggressive Link Power Management is not supported by our old hardware.
     
    You can try it and report back

    @HurricaneX,
     
    Open your VM's vmx file with Wordpad and add the line bios.bootDelay = "3000" - post#5 in my guide.  This will allow you time to press <F2> while the VM starts and access the VMware Boot Manager, where you can add Clover/CLOVERX64.efi as a boot menu entry (or simply choose to boot the EFI Hard Drive entry)...

    I try it. But my system is Intel 7 series, not so old than ICH9 or ICH10. Despite of that AppleAHCIPort.kext v329 introduce hot-plug failed on my hack. Sunki's patch solve the issue.
     
    Sorry for my bad english
     
    Edit: vit9696's patch work fine: Hot-Plug is okay on Mojave Beta 2. I think It will be same on High Sierra 10.13.5.
    Thanks @fusion71au, @vit9696

    SunKi's patches are now obsolete.
    It is more likely to use vit9696's patch, that disables behaviour of enabling ALPM where it is unneeded.

    You have to create a new prelinked kernel with AppleAHCIPort v328.  See post#13 for custom prelinkedkernel generator "PLK.tool" for High Sierra.

    You first need to extract the High Sierra kernel and /Extensions from the "Core.pkg" (open Packages folder inside Applications/Install\ macOS\ High\ Sierra.app/Contents/SharedSupport/InstallESD.dmg) using Pacifist.app.  Then repair permissions and use kextcache -u command in terminal to generate a new prelinkedkernel in the USB or HDD/System/Library/PrelinkedKernels folder.
     
    Alternatively, I have made a script "BaseSystem_PLK.tool" in post#13, that automatically generates a new custom prelinkedkernel, and places it on the desktop .
